It’s a minor miracle. I have taken so many pictures of Goldfinches because we have a big flock of them in the woods, but they are always a little blurry because they are constantly in motion. Just this once, I got a few pictures that are sharp! I can’t guarantee it will ever happen again, mind you, but having achieved it once, maybe I’ll do it again. You never know!

    • It’s such a rarity to get these guys standing still! Also, of course, my really long birding lens isn’t as fast as I wish it were, so the light has to be pretty bright to get edges. THIS time, I got EDGES. Thank you 😀
